Wake in Fright

Date: 1 Jan 2020

One man’s overnight stay in a remote outback town becomes a five day nightmare in this startlingly dark stage adaptation of the Kenneth Cook’s cult classic novel and the film it spawned.

Directed by Declan Greene and starring Zahra Newman, prepare for an unsettling Australian gothic horror that blurs mateship and menace, amicability and depravity.

The entire world of Wake in Fright is conjured in a one person show accompanied by an intense sonic soundscape from art electronica band, friendships. Under Greene’s direction, Cook’s iconic work of Australian gothic horror will be viscerally felt.
